      A short reprieve from the yearning for Book 9 "Hid From Our Eyes" that seems lost in space somewhere. Come on, Julia Spencer-Fleming -- it's been four years since the 8th book that left us hanging with so many desires suspending in wonderment in "Through Evil Days." I've searched high and low and in every nook and cranny trying to locate any little tidbit of info that I might soon get a glimpse of Clare and Russ again. Please at least post an update.

      I think I miss Clare and Russ, that's what I think. Reading these few letters and the first chapter of "One Was a Soldier" again has left me in a bad place. The next book about Millers Kill isn't scheduled to come out until sometime in the fall (oh please, please, please) and I'm not sure I'm up to the wait. Last week I read all of Julia Spencer-Fleming's work in progress chapters on the new book and my Russ-and-Clare addiction is now once again in full-force. I don't know what it is about this [...]

      This is one of my favorite series, and I loved this (very short) set of letters for the opportunity to keep in touch with the characters between books. I just wish Julia's new book would come out soon!

    • Linda says:

      Not really what I expected. Basically a preview of the next book but it was free. Very shorty a few pages.

    • Judith says:

      I expected more, although I thoroughly enjoyed what there was!

    • Ann says:

      Authentic examination of the complexity of relationship, with plot to move it along. I love this couple.

      I am a huge fan of the Rev. Clare Fergusson-Russ Van Alstyne series. It's a long wait between books, and since I am currently working on a (non-fiction) book myself I have almost no time to read for pleasure. So I was thrilled to discover this tiny volume on GoodReads. It's very short -- time spent reading is measured in minutes rather than hours. But if you have reached as far as "I Shall Not Want" and "One Was a Soldier," these letters will be meaningful and will shed further light on the char [...]

      I have read the entire series. The first book's title intrigued me because it is the title of one of my favorite Christmas hymns. Once I started reading, I was intrigued by the Rev. Clare Fergusson, an Episcopal priest who had also served in the army and was good at solving mysteries and putting herself in harm's way to do it. Then there was sexual tension developing with the police chief, Russ Van Alstyne - and the little town in upstate New York is a great backdrop for all the dramaese books m [...]

      This was incredibly sweet and good. The detail was super--typos in the email, etc. The comment about Will's mom taking the bumper sticker out of the trash brought a lump to my throat as I pictured what preceeded that.I just wish there had been more. Be forwarned--there are only, maybe 5 letters. The remainder is a preview of the book it supports. Yes, it was free, so it's not like I was ripped off, but these characters are so very dear I really wish there had been more.

    • Laura says:

      I read this ages ago, but somehow neglected to rate or review it. I enjoyed these letters that bridge the gap between the 6th and 7th books in this series. They made me miss Russ and Clare a little bit less. I just wish Julia Spencer-Fleming would write faster--there is too long a wait between her books for devoted readers like me!

    • Jan C says:

      This was a real short (free) teaser for the new book, One Was a Soldier: A Clare Fergusson/Russ Van Alstyne Mystery. I guess I'll have to go ahead and get the real book now. As if there was any doubt that I was going to anyway.

    • Dee says:

      This was a free nook book, and it was ok. I was expecting a book full of letters exchanged between people. There was a handful of letters and a preview to the book One Was a Soldier. The preview had a ton of grammar issues and typos. I wasn't impressed.

    • D says:

      very, very brief collection of maybe five letters or emails exchanged between soldiers from millers kill deployed in the middle east and their family members back home. all realistically and clearly drawn, setting up the psychologies and action for book 7, One Was a Soldier.

    • Dee says:

      I have never read anything from this author before but she is on my list now. i really enjoyed this very short take on her novel. The detail she adds got me on page one. As someone we all know says "I'll be back."4/26/12

    • Holly says:

      Too short, I expected more.

    • Jess says:

      I would have read an entire book like this, but this was just so goddamn short.

    • Laura says:

      I love the very short essay. Glad it was free. Gives insight into the next book.

    • Nancy says:

      Any additional insight into Clare and Russ is welcome. Good stuff.

    • Katie says:

      Totally expected there to be more to this. But what's there is nice!

    • TJ says:

      Thought this was an actual book, not a teaser. Oh well

    • Donna says:

      too short.

    • Laura Salas says:

      Calling this 6.5 is really misleading. It's pretty much just a preview for the next book. Disappointed.

    • Scoozer says:

      It was very, very short. I liked the letters, but wanted more.

    • Kathy Thielking says:

      If you've been following the series in order, which is the only way to read them, this book is very satisfying.

    • Elizabeth says:

      Too short and unsatisfying.

    • Lisa says:

      Very interesting preview to the book. Have never read any other books in this series but it captured me anyway and made me want to read more.

    • Kay says:

      well written. loved it

    • Anna says:

      I've heard better stories from the military en and women I speak to daily.

    • Amy says:

      It really answered questions in the book.
